The analytical process in many domains is one of associating pieces of preexisting data to form new information. Where the individual data elements are multimedia files, database entries, and computer based models, hypermedia architectures provide natural support for such a process. This paper describes aspects of analysis support that dictate particular requirements in a hypermedia based system. Adaptations of techniques from published hypermedia research were indicated by these requirements. Key among these techniques were anchoring as presented in the Dexter model, perspective filtering and navigation from graph based hypermedia, link typing from rich hypermedia, and the system structure of open hypermedia systems.
